James Naughton celebrated his New York cabaret debut at the Cafe Carlyle with "Star Trek"'s Leonard Nimoy and renowned choreographer and dancer Anne Reinking. Naughton co-starred with Reinking in the Encores! and Broadway revival of Chicago.

Naughton's run at the plush boîte — which has presented such cabaret icons as Bobby Short, Barbara Cook and Eartha Kitt — continues through May 4. Accompanied by a quartet led by musical director John Oddo, the star of stage and screen performs an eclectic mix of tunes by such composers as Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Dave Frishberg, Rodgers and Hart, Hoagy Carmichael and Cole Porter.
